IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is non-invasive and suitable for both face and body. IPL works by releasing short pulses of light that is absorbed by the skin. Depending on the aim of the treatment, IPL destroys a problem cell/vessel/hair or stimulates a desired cell to produce healing collagen.

IPL for Red Veins

Intense Pulsed Light is the treatment of choice for surface red veins. IPL releases precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed. Following a course of treatments, the red veins will clear and are re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original red vein.

IPL for Acne

IPL Acne Therapy is an effective light-based treatment that is revolutionising the treatment of acne. It works by destroying the most common bacteria that causes acne, without pain and without downtime. The IPL system is FDA approved for the treatment of acne.

IPL for Pigmentation

Sunlight, environmental factors and the natural passage of time all contribute to the development of dark spots, skin pigmentation and freckles. Your face, hands and chest are the first parts of the body to show the signs of ageing because they receive so much sun exposure.
IPL releases precisely controlled pulses of filtered light that is absorbed/attracted to the problem area of the skin, heats it up, collapses it so that it can be naturally flushed out of the body.

IPL for Skin Rejuvenation

Using IPL for skin rejuvenation is a process that is known as photo-rejuvenation. By using flashes of light that targets deepest dermal tissues without disruption to the outer epidermal layers of the skin this stimulates the production of collagen leaving skin smoother, tight and rejuvenated.-

Testimonials

I spend a lot of time outdoors and in the last few years noticed that the weather had really taken a toll on my face, and small red veins had appeared around my checks. A friend of mine mentioned IPL laser treatment so I started to do some research. I came to River Medical for a free consultation and a nurse recommended a course of 3 IPL treatments. After the 2nd I could see that the veins were starting to disappear and after the 3rd I was back to wearing little or no makeup. I am truly delighted with the results.
